Stanford University Cantor Center for Visual Arts

Stanford University Cantor Center for Visual Arts - Architectural Restoration - ARG

Originally built as the Stanford Museum, the Cantor Center for Visual Arts was one of the first structures on the West Coast built completely of reinforced concrete. Following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, ARG was the historical architect for the restoration of the museum, which included assisting the University with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) negotiations.

More recently, ARG has provided architectural services for the repair of the skylight and the roof replacement. Informed by the Historic Structure Report (HSR) prepared by ARG in 1990, these two projects, involved extensive research and evaluation to determine a solution while maintaining the building’s character and historic features
